    Few days ago I decided I should give downsampling a go and I'm very satisfied with the results. Most of the games I have used to test it are quite dated but it has nonetheless helped to figure out what the real beneficts of the downsampling are. I'm aware that nowadays almost everyone plays on +1080p resolutions but I just wanted to share these comparison shots for those who might have a setup like mine. I've also uploaded the screenshots here: http://imgur.com/gallery/sPdAW

    Trine 2 played smooth and beautifully; Dead Space 2 allowed me to enable the Very High settings for the shadows and it looked great too. Bulletstorm's screenshots don't make justice to how sharp everything was on screen and, what can I say about Crysis? The tests resulted in a 50% performance dip but it was a pleasure to the eyes :thumbup:

    I just saw your fantastic screenshots and I was wondering:
    is it possible to downsample a 1080p definition to 720p in order to play 1080p 3D games on my 720p 3D video projector?

    FYI: HDMI 1.4a does NOT allow 3D 1080p@60hz, only 1080p@24hz / 720p@60hz for 3DTV Play :(

    I game on an old Panasonic TH-37PX60EH. Not very good for desktop use but games look great.

    Pretty impressive screens.

    It should work. Try asking here: http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=346325
